Shield Maidens

Describe your company and organization and target audience

We are a circus company that has a new show. It's an all female viking show.
We are looking to sell to private parties and run events. We are dynamic and exciting.

The design should have the following

The logo needs to be clean and clear. We are looking for a circle of knott work around a female viking face. She should be sexy looking full lips and big eyes. Hair in plats with a viking Valkyrie helmet with wings on it. She need to have a look of danger about her. On her left eye we are looking for 3 stipes of war paint , in red. The face should be facing directly forwards. Including an axe,sword,spear, would be good but not at the cost of cluttering up the design. Showing bust and cleavage could be cool as the brand is sexy warrior feel.

The letters for the works should be bold and strong. Use of an outline looks good. Please do original work
